Great big bay easy to get to by both car and boat. Lots of beach to be private. Clear water, nice bush walks nearby.

Away from most of the crowds, this little strip of beach is lovely. Don't expect white sandy beaches but it's great to take the family for a swim.

Peaceful flat walk along the lake edge to the end of the bay and back with shelter from the sun and some birdsong.
